I generally don’t do dessert for my kids. But sometimes I like to do something fun post dinner. Especially in the summertime when we can sit outside and enjoy the long days with a sweet treat.
I created the Sneaky Watermelon Salad dessert as a way to please my daughter with something delicious but also sneak in some raw greens for my son who refuses to drink his morning smoothie. Olivia will gulp down a relatively unsweetened smoothie filled with kale, spinach, almonds, chia, flax and celery. But Charles takes one look at it and throws it on the floor. Boys! So I am always looking at ways for Charles to eat raw leafy greens. Todays treat was one way!
It seems like a weird combo but my kids eat a huge bowl of it. Load on the spinach – the sweetness of the watermelon and the sour of the key limes makes them ignore all that green!
